Additionally, the tech company announced a slew of exciting new additions to the device, including more portrait options, guidance for friends, and a USB-C port that's about to change everything . If you're about to upgrade, you might be wondering whether the new product is worth it, so here's an overview of everything you need to know about the iPhone 15 range, including its features, colors, and more.

Apple’s new phone lineup includes four models: iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone Pro Max. Each phone features a dynamic island notch (debuting in iPhone 14 Pro) and a USB-C port, allowing Apple fans to use the same charger to charge Mac, iPad, iPhone and second-generation AirPods Pro. (IYDK, this change has been in the works since the EU voted in favor of a universal charging standard for all electronics in June 2022.) The new series is available for pre-order now and will hit shelves on September 22nd. , but before you trade in your old one for a new one, you'll want to decide which phone (and which color) best suits your lifestyle.

iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus colors and features

iPhone 15 and 15 Plus are available in five colors: blue, yellow, green, pink and black. Aside from black, colorways are all subtle pastels, so don't expect to see the forest green option that debuted with the iPhone 13. These colors are also only available on these devices, so if you're considering upgrading to a Pro series model, you might want to reconsider based on your color preferences.

The iPhone 15 has a 6.1-inch display, while the 15 Plus has a 6.7-inch screen. The iPhone 15 starts at $799 and the Plus series starts at $899, but prices may vary based on storage and carrier.


iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max colors and features

While the Pro line doesn't come with as interesting color options as the iPhone 15 or 15 Plus, the new line marks the first time an iPhone features an "aerospace titanium design," according to Apple. This helps give the Pro series a slimmer design, meaning you don't have to worry about titanium weighing you down. In fact, the Pro series phones are only about 20 grams heavier than the regular series phones. The phones are available in natural titanium, blue titanium, white titanium and black titanium.

The iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max both have three cameras, including a more advanced 48-megapixel main camera. The Pro Max also features a new telephoto lens that enables 5x optical zoom, beating the 3x zoom of the iPhone 14 Pro series.

The iPhone 15 Pro with a 6.1-inch display starts at $999, and the 15 Pro Max with a massive 6.7-inch screen starts at $1,199, with prices likely to vary based on your storage size and carrier.


iPhone 15 series features

The iPhone wouldn't be a new product without some exciting new features worth obsessing over, starting with the pinpoint tool in Find My. Now, when you share your location with someone, you can navigate to their exact location, even if you're walking through a crowd or in a park. With easy-to-follow instructions and helpful distance indicators, the app will guide you every step of the way—literally.

As for the camera upgrade, iPhone 15 users will no longer have to switch to portrait mode to take stunning selfies. Additionally, you can switch the focus subject of the portrait even after the photo is taken. Finally, now that the iPhone 15 series supports USB-C, you can charge your second-generation AirPods Pro directly from your phone when the wireless earbuds run out of battery. After so long, the battery noise is very low.
